DescriptionMany types of fences were found on residential lots in the metropolitan-suburban area of St. Louis County, Missouri, and three small towns in southern Illinois. Wire fences predominated. More wooden fences were found on village lots than on city lots. In general, the more expensive homes had the most wooden fencing. Homes over 5 years old had more fencing of all types than did the newer homes. Homes on large lots and those on corner lots had more wooden fences than homes on smaller lots and on interior lots. These relationships suggest that wood fence manufactures, wood material suppliers, and fence dealers could better delineate their potential fence market areas by examining census tract data, home construction statistics, and municipal records.
